agreement. a hamas official told reuters they had come close but the talks "must wait until tomorrow." now this is morsi's real debut on the world stage. he rose from his position as head of the engineering department at a cairo university to become president of egypt last year. it's really an intriguing story. morsi replaced, as you know, president hosni mubarak who had been in power for three decades and was one of israel's few allies in the region and morsi ran as the muslim brotherhood's candidate and he promised to implement islamic law. but analysts say that he's not really a true religious fundamentalist. that he had to adopt those positions to fend off competition from islamist extremists. and his background does seem to suggest that he may be more of a moderate. at least he spent eight years in the united states. he's earned a ph.d. in engineering from usc before he joined the faculty at cal state university north ridge. in fact, two of his five children were actually born during that time and those kids are

because their children are safe. hamas and israel have agreed to a ceasefire for the moment. each side launched about 1500 strikes, and there were violent protests in the west bank in which one palestinian was killed. the final straw was the bombing of a crowded tel-aviv bus today that blast injured 21 israelis. late today secretary of state hillary clinton joined egypt's foreign minister to announce a ceasefire agreement which says . . . >> jennifer: secretary clinton praised the leadership but says there is still work to be done. >> egypt's new government is assuming the responsibility and leadership that has long made this country a cornerstone of regional peace, as i discussed today with the others there is no substitute for a just and lasting peace. >> jennifer: lasting peace will not come easy though, the region is still extremely fragile, and israel's military reported that the palestinians have launched five rockets since thesis fire began, and in gaza city palestinians shut guns in the air, and meanwhile mosques across the region congratulated pales

because hamas and other militant groups are using these much lower-tech weapons to launch out of gaza. you mentioned the patriot system, there is the next stage of the patriot which is known as the arrow defense system but those deal with much higher tech and bigger missiles. >> jennifer: so is -- because it has been so successful will israel use a combination of the two? is the patriot missile, if it only has a 10% successful interception rate, are these more advanced patriot missiles up to the level of the iron dome? >> even though the patriot missile defense system made a lot of headlines as you mentioned the shootdown rate was much lower. but another system has been developed, called the arrow defense system, which even though it has not been tested in a similar way as the gulf war, is expected to be much more effective. >> jennifer: do you think other nations or even nato could replicate the iron dome technology and what impact would that have in the region if both sides had interception and maybe missiles not landing in populated areas on either side? >> r

suffering from the bombardment of hamas. these were themed that caused the jewish community in south florida in particular to understand and remember why they supported the president in such large numbers in 22008. >> jennifer: all right. it is interesting because i think there's a momentum shift we're seeing as well. romney was in florida today, and the political director told reporters on a conference call that quote romney will win election day by double digits in florida. so why would romney be campaigning in a state that he is going to win by double digits. do you think this is all just bluster? >> oh, it is bluster. and i think he was in florida because of the potential damage on his stance on fema. florida more than anywhere else are particularly sensitive when it comes to national disasters. and floridians are very aware of the positives and some of the shortcomings of federal relief. but they do appear rate the good that can come from a federally managed system. and that's what we are seeing this week throughout the mid-atlantic. and governor's position w
